The Enterprise!

I made this little bit of craftiness over the Thanksgiving Holiday and have been holding out on posting it until I gave it to my Secret Santa at work... or I guess that would make me the Secret Santa. Either way the one receiving it was a Trekky and was very happy with it.  I was excited to make it as well, since there aren't any patterns out their for the Starship Enterprise.  I did find a ton of R2D2 and Star Wars amigurumi patterns which made me wonder where all the trekky crocheters are at.  So here it is! To inspire those who love crochet as much as I do.. and some Star Trek.

There isn't really a pattern for this one its just two discs with a band, some cylinders, a coat hanger and some foam lettering. I guessed on most of it and got it done over the span of an evening and afternoon.  Not bad for my first attempt at aircraft I have to say.

Some of My Finest Work

Since I've been crocheting for almost 3 years now, I have some catch up to do on some of my creations. Here's just a few quick pics of what I've done.  I've promised myself to start documenting the process more, which is what this blog is for. 

"Hold the Onions"
 Some Mini "Hold the Onions" Christmas Ornaments
 "Smile Pretty!"
The following I have done from patterns, so I don't want to take all the credit. But I did think they were fun to share.

 A Hooty Hoot Family

Lion Brand's Park Slope Afghan with some changes

Le Premier Poste

Welcome to my first blog! I was told by a few very intelligent people that I should start posting the crafts that I make online... so here it is.  The official place to see one of a kind, handmade items by Miss. Velcrobuttons herself.  I hope you enjoy it, and if you see anything you like please let me know. I love to hear comments on the things I make.
